Arsenal will sign former player in a £62 million move
Arsenal could offer £62 million to bring their former player back to the club.
Arsenal are looking to improve their midfield options this summer and they have identified former Academy graduate Yunus Musah as a potential target.
The 20-year-old American international has been an important player for the Spanish club Valencia and his performances have caught the attention of the big clubs.
A report from Fichajes claims that Arsenal could look to sign the player this summer and they could submit a blockbuster offer of around €70 million (£62m).
The 20-year-old central midfielder is highly rated in European football and he has a big future ahead of him. He could prove to be a solid, long-term investment for Arsenal.
The opportunity to return to the North London club could be an attractive proposition for the youngster. He might feel that he has unfinished business at Arsenal.
The Gunners need to bring in a quality partner for Thomas Partey and Musah seems like the ideal acquisition in theory.
The 20-year-old is likely to get ample game time at the North London club and he would get to showcase his qualities at a higher level.
Arsenal are set to play in the UEFA Champions League next season and they will be an attractive destination for most players.
Furthermore, the Gunners require more squad depth in order to participate in numerous competitions.
Mikel Arteta has done well with the club in developing young players such as Bukayo, Saka, Gabriel Martinelli, Martin Odegaard, and William Saliba. He may also have a favorable impact on Musah’s development.
The 20-year-old may continue his development at Arsenal with regular play and realize his world-class potential.
Meanwhile, Valencia is struggling for survival in the first flight and is on the verge of relegation to the second division. A talented player like Musah will want to compete at a higher level, and he will most likely leave this summer.
